President-elect John Dudley has been awarded the French National Centre for Scientific Research [CNRS] silver medal 2013 for his scientific achievements in the fields of nonlinear optics, ultrafast photonics, optical techniques and supercontinuum generation. John’s research activities focus equally on experimental and theoretical studies in nonlinear optics, with particular emphasis on optical fibre propagation, ultrafast metrology, noise and instabilities, and nonlinear dynamics in general. Rogue waves and the analogy of optics and hydrodynamics approaches are among his actual research interests. John is a co-laureate of an ERC Advanced Grant to study the mathematics and physics…
